Association Achievements

bar1

We have refrained from putting the names of our members to the events and accomplishments due in part to the fact that the ACPOA membership spanned Canada and the world. The efforts at times tireless and against all odds were accomplished by the monetary support of all then wrapped in the love of seeing a project from start to finish from our home base in “Slackers” (Halifax) in a proper and seaman like manner, under the auspices of “The Maritime Commander”, Maritime Command who’s valuable assistance and direction when sought was always most appreciated. We also would like to give thanks to other service organizations, the outstanding people of Halifax and beyond who supported each and every one of our projects. We after all were the lucky ones as many of Canada’s gallant sailors never returned to port and shall not be forgotten. We trust our efforts on their behalf will forever remain a visible sign of remembrance. ACPOA, Halifax, Nova Scotia In the year of 2010
